I recently purchased a box of 100gr SP 6mm  Lapua bullets. The bullets look identical to the Speer 100 gr GS bullet. The base of the bullets are even stamped GS. Anybody have any comments?

  Wow!

If I didn't know better, I'd say that they are Speer Grand Slam bullets, alright.
 Good bullet BTW.
 Where did you buy them?
 Anybody know the deal here?

I just looked at some of my .308 Lapua Scenar's for any stamp or marking and found none. Don't know......

Wasn't LAPUA marketed at one time by SPEER? These aren't target bullets ,but a soft point which is identical to the SPEER GS. It probably doesn't matter now because this bullet appears to be no longer available for sale under the LAPUA brand name. The box is marked .243 E497 6.5g/100 gr. SP (6.16mm/.243)
